Honor GOD with everything you own;
give him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over.
Proverbs 3:9-10 MSG
At times, your life is probably hectic, demanding, and complicated. When the demands of life leave you rushing from place to place with scarcely a moment to spare, you may fail to pause and thank your Creator for the blessings He has bestowed upon you. But that's a big mistake.
Whom will you choose to honor today? If you honor God and place Him at the center of your life, every day is a cause for celebration. But if you fail to honor your Heavenly Father, you're asking for trouble, and lots of it. So honor God for who He is and for what He has done for you. And don't just honor Him on
Sunday morning. Praise Him all day long, every day, for as long as you live . . . and then for all eternity.
God shows unbridled delight when He sees people acting in ways that honor Him.
We honor God by asking for great things when they are a part of His promise. We dishonor Him and cheat ourselves when we ask for molehills where He has promised mountains.
What lessons about honor did you learn from your childhood? Are you living what you learned today?
Happiness is to be found only in the home where God is loved and honored, where each one loves, and helps, and cares for the others.
St. Theophane Venard
I praise You, Lord, from the depths of my heart, and I give thanks for Your goodness, for Your mercy, and for Your Son. Let me honor You every day of my life through my words and my deeds. Let me honor You, Father, with all that I am. Amen
